A systematic tool for the minimization of the life cycle impact of solar assisted absorption cooling systems

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 9 July 2010brBerhane H., Gebreslassie , Gonzalo, Guillén-Gosálbez , Laureano, Jiménez , Dieter, BoerabrIn recent years, there has been a growing increase of the cooling demand in many parts of the world, which has led to major energy problems. In this context, solar assisted absorption cooling systems have emerged as a promising alternative to conventional vapor compression air conditioning systems, given the fact that in many cases the cooling demand coincide with the availability of solar radiation. In this work, we present a decision-support tool based on mathematical programming for the design of solar assisted absorption cooling systems. The design task is formulated as a bi-criteria mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) optimization problem that…
